This talk is mostly based on contained databases in SQL Server 2012. The first part of the talk goes over the problems with current database movement, the idea of containment, and the implementation in SQL Server 2012. There are demos that cover the user and collation scenarios. The second part of the talk goes into the basics of AlwaysOn. I talk about the architecture, the various scenarios you can have, and the advantages and drawbacks of the technologies involved. There are no demos of AlwaysOn mostly due to time.
